Does It Matter if We Gather?

Part 3:
“Gathering Matters for Our Growth”

by Michael Lewis

September 26, 2021

“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. 29 For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.”  -Romans 8:28-29

Content alone is never enough to transform a life.

  • When God saw a world broken and unable to save itself from sin.
  • No one knows more about how to make followers like Jesus, than Jesus.
  • “FOLLOWSHIP” requires fellowship (I made this word up).

Connection is required for a better reflection:

  • We grow in the image of Jesus by gatherings together with brothers and sisters to worship.
  • Jesus-followers grow by serving others together.
  • We grow by loving one another together.

Does It Matter if We Gather?

Part 2:
“It Matters to Our Faith”

by Michael Lewis

September 19, 2021

PRINT MICHAEL’S HANDOUT

Acts 2

Even before the pandemic there was a well-researched  decline  in America for participating church meetings.

Among the biggest reasons for decline in going to church meetings in America is our  affluence  and our electronic  connectedness .

Remember: What is vital for some should NOT become  normal  for most.

The New Testament knows nothing about belonging to Jesus without belonging to other  followers  of Jesus:

1. The first Christians were born and added into a family devoted to four  passions .

2. Faith cannot be motivated by convenience, but by  conviction .

3. A growing faith is  saturated  with God’s point of view and being together with God’s people.

Primary Scriptures: Acts 2:1; Acts 2:42-47; Hebrews 10:24, 25.

Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.”  Romans 12:3-5

Be planning for DEBT FREE SUNDAY!
On Oct. 3rd, we will release this church from our debt. If you are unable to be here on the 3rd then please give early or late, but please clearly label your check so it may be properly counted (or hand your envelope to an elder).

Dalton Gardens Ladies Retreat (Oct 1-3)… It will be held again at the Savenac Historic Tree Nursery in Haugan, MT. Meals are provided.  Bring a dessert or snack to share, bedding, toiletries, a Bible, clothes, and embroidery materials. If you haven’t already, call the office to sign up.

Dan and Teri DuPey’s, “Celebrating Teaching,” scheduled for Oct. 9 has been postponed… It’s because of the increase in COVID concerns.

Thanks to all who helped with the Mountain States Children’s Home food drive… You did great.

Social media is a two-edged sword. It can be used to bless and used to hurt. From teens to the oldest among us, let’s be careful to do what Paul say: “Let no unwholesome talk come out of your mouth (or fingertips), but only what is helpful for building others up (Eph. 4:29).If you notice something that seems worrisome among Christians on social media please mention it to one of our shepherds so they might help. Let’s all remember to: Tweet others as you would wish to be tweeted.
